Director’s firewalk raises £1,000 for children’s hospice

Daring feat: Linden Homes South West’s Jason Knight crosses the five-metre firewalk

Daring feat: Linden Homes South West’s Jason Knight crosses the five-metre firewalk

One of our South West region’s team bravely put his best foot forward to raise money for charity – by bravely crossing a five-metre bed of burning coals!

Commercial director Jason Knight’s daring effort raised £1,000 for Children’s Hospice South West at its Little Bridge House hospice near Barnstaple, Devon. It was hot work as the average temperature of the embers was 800 degrees Celsius.

Jason said afterwards: “The firewalk was amazing, I managed to convince my wife to take part too and I’m thrilled at how much money we raised. It was really interesting to visit Little Bridge House and see the valuable work that they do.”
 
The organisation is our South West region’s charity of the year and has three hospices near St Austell, Barnstaple and Bristol. They help families with children suffering life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, providing precious memories and vital support.

Naomi Dymond, corporate partnerships fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West, said: “It seems odd that people are choosing to line up to walk on hot coals but it just goes to show how much the charity touches people’s hearts and inspires them to raise money.

“We’re delighted that Jason and his wife not only braved the firewalk but collected £1,000 for Children’s Hospice South West – an amazing total.”
